After he arrived in New Jersey in 1681, Mark Newby (1638-1683) became a member of the legislature, and had passed a law that made his St. Patrick's pieces current money.

A medium brown example that has impressive detail and no apparent abrasions. The brass splasher on the crown is centered slightly left. Much nicer than usually seen for this Irish import. Listed on page 39 of the 2010 Guide Book. Population: 6 in 40, 0 finer (11/09). (PCGS# 46)
